Like a worn blanket,

a bad hand of cards,

or flour into egg.

I fold into you easily

as if we belong

under

on top of

all over one another.

-Fold



We grow round and supple with age-

a little thicker in the thighs,

a bit rounder in the middle.

We are so full,

yet we look in the mirror and

try to convince ourselves

we're not pretty anymore

because the magazines tell us

our soft and our stretch marks aren't beautiful.

But go to the mango tree,

seek out a fruit,

and tell me you won't pick the

fullest, ripest one.

-Ripe
